Most Significant Business Learning Experience:

Hannes started two financial services businesses that ran a loss of more than $571,000 within the first eighteen months. He turned those businesses, single-handedly, into profitable businesses after all "experts" advised that it would be better to liquidate the business because there was no chance of reviving them. It was the realization, as a CFP, that more than 95% of the world population would not be financially secure at retirement age, and that he was on his way to staying part of that 95%, that was a major turning point in his life.

From that day on, he endeavoured to find out why conventional investments and investment advice simply don't work. In the process, he discovered and developed the true secrets, strategies and formulae for wealth creation, the ones that have genuine potential to set people free. Dr Dreyer has dedicated his life to helping ordinary people learn and apply these strategies so that they too can have real wealth. All his strategies are based on Universal Principles and Laws. In this way, it is possible for anyone to build wealth in all seven areas of life, with the emphasis on creating, preserving and enjoying financial wealth.


Developed by Hannes, today the Formula For Riches® is still a breakthrough in Strategic Wealth Creation, enabling ordinary people from all walks of life to systematically achieve their goals in a focused, results centred fashion. The Formula for Riches® is integral to Hannes’ Wealth Creation approach and can be applied in every area of wealth. The Formula for Riches® has been used by his students over the past 25 years as a fail-safe approach to building wealth, fulfilment, happy relationships, greater security, increased peace of mind, bountiful leisure time, and much, much more. To date, the Formula For Riches® has sold more than 20 000 copies worldwide.

Property Investor

His approach also includes property investments, a much-misunderstood wealth creation tool that, correctly used, has incredible potential for financial freedom. He developed his prestige Property Pro Analytical Tool™ in 1987, which has enabled him to retire from financial planning at the age of 37. In 2002 he made the Property Pro Analytical Tool™ available to the general public through his best-selling course: The Property Pro Investment Course™, to help people understand and apply the strategic reasoning to make the right choices when investing in property for financial freedom.

Family Man:

He accredits his success in life to his wife Tanja. They have been happily married for 39 years. They have two daughters and recently became grandparents. Hannes enjoys spending time with his family and educating his daughters in the art of Wealth Creation. He has a long list of hobbies that he pursues, including flying helicopters, travelling, scuba diving, fire walking, bungee jumping, reading and research, game farming and growing cycads, and cycling. He is to be found, on most days, walking around and around his tennis court, or camping somewhere in the bushveld devising new ways of developing Wealth Creators.

Debt Eradication Strategist:

Developed with the mission to free himself and his family from the proverbial rat race, the Warriors Against Debt: Debt Eradication System™ has proved invaluable in all phases of the economic cycle, allowing people trapped in the rat race to take those first crucial steps to realize their financial goals no matter how bleak their financial situations. Today more than 20 years after its initial conception, the Warriors Against Debt program is still the best system on the market to reduce financial stress and to help set people free to take back control of their finances.

Leading Wealth Creator:

Witnessing the effect the Formula for Riches® has had on people from differing countries, genders and educational levels inspired him to complete his PhD on “Applying The Formula For Wealth Creation To Develop Entrepreneurs And Investors”. He took on a personal challenge to use the Formula for Riches® to liberate people from pervasive myths like “you must have money to make money”, “you must make use of financial institutions, because you can’t do it on your own” and “you have to be lucky, well-connected, well-educated, or exceptionally talented to become wealthy”.

To disprove these damaging myths, Hannes took less than 12 cents and turned it into an investment of over $1,400.000.00 in less than two and a half years. The entire process was documented for his students through his Mentoring Course. He is the founder and CEO of the Wealth Creators University™, a private outcome-based learning institute, based on the culmination of 27 years of knowledge, experience, research and study into finance, economics, psychology and philosophy.
